look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 16oz tulip glass. Nice hazy orange-yellow color, short half finger head, dissipates to a constant foam film.

Aroma is mostly malt with some apple or pear in background.

Taste is a refreshingly sweet, somewhat cider like note. I detected some spice or dryness in the finish.

Medium body and carbonation, yet refreshing, There is more crispness than expected.

Overall, I liked this and consider it an above average beer, First Bier de Mars, so I am far from being able to rate this against others in this type. I also think this is a style that should be drunk very fresh, and closer to season, which I unfortunately did not do. That being said, I would look for this again, and would look for the Brewer again as well.

This is a fairly good slightly sweet malty beer. Nothing exceptional. Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a flute. Hazy apple cider color with a medium size bubbly white head. Average retention and some scattered lacing on the glass.

Aroma is mild, somewhat sweet malt, not so much caramel as a kind of apple cider aroma. Taste is similar, somewhat malty with a slight light fruit flavor. Very mild hops bitterness.

Mouthfeel is light, slightly sweet and nicely carbonated.

Overall pleasant enough but there is nothing memorable here,

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a medium bronze amber with a half finger white head with good retention and nice lacing. Aroma of bready, mildy caramel malt, Belgian yeast, apple juice, light vinous mustiness. Flavor follows aroma with bready and caramel malt, light toffee, apple and grape juice, Belgian yeast; lightly buttery spicy. Medium bodied with light creaminess. A nice domestic take on a Biere de garde, with a nice balanced variety of malt and fruit flavors, satisfying mouth feel. Nicely done.

12 oz bottle
Pours clear amber with plenty of visible carbonation and a durable off-white head.

Aroma: more like a pilsner than expected, with earthy hops showing.

Flavor: certainly better than the aroma suggests. Moderate complexity. Mild bitterness in the finish and aftertaste. Bready malts with faint fruity and spicy notes.

O: well seeking out.

Feel: excellent creamy but lively feel with medium+ body.

Appearance - reddish golden color with white head

Smell - ? not picking up much at all with the nose, what I can detect is a hint of citrus

Taste - caramel, cherry, citrus

Mouthfeel - medium body, medium carbonation, crisp, refreshing

Overall - my first time with this style, not a huge departure from a traditional amber ale. I'm glad to have tried this.

Pours a golden copper with a finger of head. The nose is yeasty and there is also some sweet note as well - syrup or perhaps molasses. The malt is quite forward considering the body is fairly light. There is the classic Belgian funky tartness but it is relatively mild. The finish is semi-dry.

Pours a hazy orange with a beautiful sunshine yellow hue. Scant head of loose white foam that fell fast. Nose is forward with malt and it's a sweet cracker. Some earthy spice and a beautiful herbal that is sweet like the first grass. Floral but subtle. Orange citrus is in the background like it's just waiting to come out and show itself.

Tasste is lovely. It's a bit of dry biscuit and it's soft and delectable. It has a bit of sweetness to it and a lush earthy spice. Good carbonation keeps this dancing across the palate. The spice and the malty character are the foundation for a very delicate citrus. The orange is subtle and demure. It permeates the drink but never comes on too strong. It leaves you wanting more. There is a sweet grassy herbal that it tantalizing alongside the orange.

This beer is lovely.Malt forward in a way that is playful and with a fruit character that is as lovely as the thought of the fruit itself. I like this style very much and it's my first time with it. I would call it subtle and a bit savory with an elegant taste of fruit.
